And now I'm back! Back with a vengence!
Did I miss anything?
I was just thinking about what would happen if various people from history suddenly came back from the dead and started spending all their time on CT, WoW and the like. Here's what I came up with;
Jesus: He takes ages to respawn, but his guild is huge
Sir Francis Drake: Plays to loot monsters
Attila the Hun: Booted from the server for spawn camping
Charles Babbage: Crafts items but only ever gets half way
Shakespeare: He invents 1337 mk II
Ghandi: Only plays PvE
Florence Nightingale: Only ever uses res spells
Hitler: He cancels his account after his whole guild succumbs to ice spells
I know there isn't much point to trying to psychoanalyse fictional characters, but I'm bored. Remember you shouldn't really take this topic seriously;
Sarge: He shows clear signs of violence and inability to plan. In addition ot it being implied he was abused as a child (the story about his "uncle") he may suffer from Antisocial personality disorder. On the other hand this behaviour may well be limited to outbursts caused by another disorder.
Simmons: He demonstrates a reverence for rules and superiors and the need to follow orders. This would imply a personality with a high F score (a "fascist" personality, usually the result of growing up in a strict family). He apparently has "father issues" which may be the result of this upbringing.
Grif: He's lazy but doesn't seem to have any form of pathological disorder. His behaviour seems cynical so its possible that he comes from a middle class background.
Donut: He seems a bit foolish at times but not necessarily to the point where it would be considered an illness. He is also clearly effeminate but that's not been in the DSM (that's the book of psychological disorders BTW) for decades.
Church: He seems anti social and irritable but not in such a way which would indicate mental illness. See Grif.
Tucker: Again, see Grif
Caboose: He seems to lack intelligence which would be grounds for diagnosing retardation or a similar disorder if his IQ was formally tested. On the other hand he may simply have a distorted perception of the world which would fall under a communication disorder.
Tex: She seems violent, manipulative and apparently steals from Church. She shows no remorse for violent behaviour and makes excuses for it ("I just get payed to do mean things"). This may indicate Antisocial personality disorder.
Lopez: He's a robot and thus cannot logically suffer from a psychological illness. However he doesn't seem to be a fan of Asimov in any case.
O'Malley: He may be an AI but he seems to emulate (or maybe be a copy of) a human mind. He exhibits poor planning and delusions of grandeur. This would be a case of megalomania. Though this may be contradicted by the fact he is trying to take over the universe, as megalomania is defined as the belief of already having power rather than trying to obtain it. Of course the belief that he can take over the universe could be defined as such.
Doc: He seems to have trouble with communication and forming social relationships. This may be a sign of autism or social anxiety.
Wyoming: He hasn't really shown any psychological disorder, unless you count being some sort of evil version of James Bond.
Crunchbite: He seemed a bit obsessed with his quest. This could be a sign of some sort of disorder but is not enough to diagnose anything on its own.
Vic: He's annoying but that's not a sign of insanity, yet.
Gary: As sane as a knock knock joke obsessed computer can be.
Grunts: Strong social bonding. Possibly a sign of mass hysteria as both sides seem to want ot kill each other for no real reason.
Vic Jr.: No less sane than Vic it would seem
Jimmy: I don't trust the way that skull looks at me....
York: He seemed pretty rational (this may be due to the influence of Delta) despite the desire for revenge.
Alien Baby: Most diagnoses of a psychological disorder require the subject to be an adult.

After a lot of recommendations I decided to buy the Thief series. The thing is though, I found all 3 games for a total of Ã‚Â£9.98 (4.99 for a 1+2 double pack and 4.99 for Dark Shadows). But if the games are so good why are they so cheap?
Niche games FTW I guess.
